Ring Rail Line (Kehärata in Finnish) is a railway route in the area of the city of Vantaa, in the Greater Helsinki Metropolitan Area of Finland. It connects Helsinki-Vantaa Airport and the adjacent Aviapolis business and retail district to the Helsinki commuter rail network. The line fills the gap between Vantaankoski and Tikkurila railway stations, travelling in tunnel underneath the airport.  The line started operating on 1 July 2015.
 
For commissioning and operating, Ring Rail Line required approvals from the authorities. The project included risk assessment according to CSM (Common Safety Method/EU-regulation).  The CSM risk assessment documentation was approved by an independent assessor. This independent assessor was Ramboll.

The purpose of the assessor’s work was to evaluate whether the risk assessment process was undertaken in accordance with requirements of EU regulation (CSM-RA). In conclusion Ramboll delivered the independent safety assessment report, which formed basis for the project application for commissioning.

The essential basis for the assessor’s assessment of the safety documents:

  • system definition
  • safety plan
  • hazard log
  • safety documentation
